About me

Are you finding your relationships difficult or unsatisfactory? Perhaps you feel lonely, anxious or depressed and would like a greater sense of connection with those around you. Or perhaps you are a couple stuck in a pattern of conflict or unhappiness, contemplating separation and divorce. It can be difficult to resolve such issues alone. The process of seeking therapy and finding a therapist can appear to be pretty difficult too and my aim is to make the experience as straightforward as possible.

I am an experienced and qualified psychotherapist and offer psychotherapy and relationship counselling to individuals and couples. With a kind and thoughtful approach, I seek to create a safe and secure space where we can work together towards resolving the difficulties you might be experiencing. Each individual and couple is unique and the focus will be on exploring what works for you. This is a collaborative process and the aim is for the work to be yours and something you can take away and keep with you.

Life can present many challenges, times when we might feel confused or overwhelmed and it becomes difficult to think clearly. Getting stuck in a place where the ability to communicate appears to be lost and conflict escalates is surprisingly easy and finding a way out might feel impossible but creating the space for thought and the potential for change is achievable.

A non-judgemental and inclusive welcome is extended to every individual and couple of all cultures, backgrounds and orientations.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • I trained at Tavistock Relationships (formerly The Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships) attaining the Post-Graduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Couple and Individual Psychotherapy and Counselling.
  • To build on the substantial experience gained there and to add to my knowledge and widen my approach I became a Relate registered Counsellor. In addition to my private practice I continue in the pursuit of further clinical development with Relate and with other agencies.
  • I have an MSc (KCL) in Health and Society which examined in depth the societal causes of ill health and the importance of good relationships in promoting better health.
  • Being a registered member of the BACP (MBACP) I adhere to their professional code of ethics and place client care and confidentiality at the forefront of my practice.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
